In the latest episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, changes in the Harry Potter franchise, and a cult hit from a reluctant director.

2004’s Harry Potter & The Prisoner Of Azkaban (2004) saw the popular series in need of a mini-course correction, and some notable personnel changes.

Allan Moyle, meanwhile, had John Cusack in mind for his 1990 movie Pump Up The Volume. And he wasn’t keen to direct it.

Stories of both are discussed in this episode.
